There is a new shop in town!
It’s called Kernel of Hove, and it’s a vegetarian and vegan grocery store.
To be fair, Brighton and Hove have great option for ‘veggie people’: lots of restaurants, products and so on, which is great! But when I got a leaflet from this new place, I got really excited.
I saw it a few weeks ago, right before leaving from Malaysia. I told myself I would buy from here as soon as I got back, but my food poisoning slowed me down. Now that I’m all better, and the weather outside is lovely, I went for a walk and reached the shop!
Because I was walking, and it was my first time in there, I mainly wanted to get an idea of what they sold. I didn’t want to get too much, but I was more than happy to see that it carries some of my favourite brands, and I even discovered some amazing new snacks.
I completely forgot to pick up some fruit from outside, but hey, everything I did get is so good!
This is all, and the things I’m most excited about are:
- the Kale chips; I have tasted many – most are pretty good, some are terrible, but these… there are the best. I’m tempted to run back to the shop and get more, because trust me, they are so delicious.
- Vegolino; these vegan chocolate treats are insanely good. I have started buying them from the vegan restaurant in The Lanes I mentioned a few times in here – Loving Hut – but because I don’t live too close to it, I never really had a chance to stuck up on these. Now I do!
- Honey Halva with almonds; yes. This is everything. It’s been years now that I have enjoyed the taste of halva, and I usually go for the standard vanilla taste, but this… this has both honey and almonds. So good.
I’m so looking forward to eating all this food. haha
Happy September, by the way!
